Ruminations of the Easily Amused for 8/29/2016

Out of the end of summer doldrums. 

Sunday funnies from Pdiddie (BrainsNEggs)

I'm so sorry to hear Gene Wilder passed away. LOVED him in The Producers, Young Frankenstein and the first Charlie and the Chocolate Family is THE version (sorry, Johnny Depp). I don't think there is any movie that had him in it that I didn't like. As a bonus, he was an atheist

“I’m going to tell you what my religion is,” Wilder told an interviewer in 2005. “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Period. Terminato. Finito… I have no other religion. I feel very Jewish and I feel very grateful to be Jewish. But I don’t believe in God or anything to do with the Jewish religion.”

the guy who did that said he couldn't find the Fat Fat Fat from Producers. While looking I ran across this again.

I like this. A state rep calls for suspension of the STARR test.

State Rep. Jason Isaac’s proposal comes the week after the Texas Education Agency announced it was penalizing the New Jersey-based company that develops and administers the controversial exams more than $20 million over problems that surfaced during springtime testing —including computer glitches that caused students to lose answers. It is the first year Educational Testing Services has overseen STAAR administration after the state scrapped the bulk of its longtime contract with London-based Pearson Education.

“Flawed testing practices threaten the State of Texas’ ability to fulfill our education system’s goals — and our children’s futures,” Isaac, R-Dripping Springs, said in a statement Monday. “The litany of errors being uncovered about STAAR is simply a disservice to our students, hard-working teachers, and families.”

I'm not for Gary Johnson but I LOVE THIS ADDDDDD!!!!!!!! hahahahah

Ooops. A previously undiscovered asteroid just came close to earth.....

New heroine. 65 year old woman shoots down drone over her VA property in ONE SHOT.  I like the "just returned from church and was cleaning her shotguns" part. hah.

"Youngman told Ars that she had just returned from church one Sunday morning and was cleaning her two shotguns -- .410 and a .20 gauge -- on her porch. She had a clear view of the Blue Ridge Mountains and neighbor Robert Duvall's property (yes, the same Robert Duvall from The Godfather). Youngman had seen two men set up a card table on what she described as a 'turnaround place' on a country road adjacent to her house. 'I go on minding my business, working on my .410 shotgun and the next thing I know I hear bzzzzz,' she said. '

The US has now met its goal of admitting 10,000 Syrian refugees
